BRITS are basking in sunny weather as warmer temps begin to climb – and a 29C heatwave could mark one of the hottest springs on record.

Tropical breezes from Spain today are likely to bring a taste of things to come.

In its three-month outlook for councils and businesses, the Met Office said: “The chance of a warm spring is much higher than normal.”

Bookmakers cut odds on April being the hottest on record to 4/5.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “The odds say we’ll roast.”

The Met Office, which considers spring to be the months of March, April and May, said 24C (75F) was expected in weeks, with 29C (84F) due later in the season.

The news comes as Brits are set to bask in ‘early summer’ temperatures next week due to a heatwave in the Arctic.

The Met Office says that London in particular will see clear skies and top temperatures of around 17°C on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

  • Spring 2022 ODDS-ON to be hottest EVER

    LADBROKES have slashed the odds on spring 2022 season going down as the hottest EVER.

    With Brits set to bask in scorching temperatures over the next few weeks, the bookies have already cut odds to just 4/6 (from 10/11) on this being the hottest spring since records began.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Things have finally taken a turn for the better on the weather front, and we’re now well on course for a record-breaking hot spring, if thew latest odds are anything to go by.”

  • Outlook for the week ahead

    According to BBC Weather, temperatures will be around 14C on Monday, before we’re surprised to a real heatwave again.

    Tuesday is set to hit 18C – one of the hottest days of the year so far.

    This however will be topped on Wednesday, with temperatures predicted to hit around 20C.
    The clear skies and next to no wind should make you feel like you’re on holiday in Tenerife!

    This midweek scorcher is also followed by a near identical 19C day on Thursday, before next weekend sees the mercury hover between 16C and 17C over the three days.

    Then, by Monday March 28 the weather will return to around 15C – a more cloudy March we’re usually used to.

  • Cleaning hack to get the patio looking its best before summer

    Now that the weather is warming up, you might feel the pull to get back into your garden.

    But after months of rain and storms, it’s probably looking a bit worse for wear, especially your patio.

    Patios can harbour inches of thick sludge that builds up in the nooks and crannies.

    Luckily, keen cleaners know that there is a simple trick you can use to get your patio area looking fresh and ready for your first BBQ of the season.

    Normal household bleach is great for outdoors as well as indoors.

    The cleaning product can be mixed with boiling water and scrubbed with a hard brush, if you want to use a little less elbow grease make sure you leave the bleach to sit for 10-15 minutes before you start scrubbing.

    The bleach will help cut through the sludge what has built up in the cracks of your patio over winter, restoring it to its former glory.

  • The Met Office on April’s weather

  • ‘Big weather highlights’ to hit in April

    It has been claimed by weather experts that there is a possibility of a heatwave in April.

    He also added: “Longer-term, given what’s happening globally in terms of the temperature profiles in the southern hemisphere and what’s also happening in the United States, I would not be surprised if we started to see some big highlights – in whichever direction it goes, either cold or hot.”

  • Weather for this evening and tonight
